Advanced Vision Technology (AVT) will debut its new Hologram Inspection System at LabelExpo Europe in September in Brussels, Belgium. The 100% automatic inspection system combines traditional print inspection technologies, holographic foils inspection, and hologram print applications, the company reported in a statement.
The system combines illumination and optics technologies developed by AVT over the last two years. It is reportedly the first 100% inspection system in the market that can inspect all foils and holograms without the need for a second or third optic head on a printing press or doctor machine, AVT reports.
AVT tells PMP News that the solution was designed to support printers. "The concept of the system is to 'flatten' the reflection coming from the holograms (see image 1 and 2) and enable printers to inspect holograms and holographic foil exactly like they inspect diffusive print," explains a company spokesperson.
“Our new Hologram Inspection System is two years in the making, and is the result of AVT building upon its established industry-leading vision inspection technology,” said Amir Dekel, Vice President of Corporate Marketing for Advanced Vision Technology Ltd., in the statement. “We look forward to introducing this new solution, as well as showcasing AVT’s unparalleled set of other vision inspection products and services.”
AVT reports that it will showcase these other print inspection solutions at LabelExpo Europe:
• Next-generation PrintFlow print quality database featuring an upgraded user interface, a new roll map display and expanded production management capabilities.
• Workflow Link that utilizes information directly from the press inspection database to automatically stop the rewinder, avoiding the unnecessary duplication of defective products.
• SpectraLab add-on module to the Helios II family, featuring in-line spectral measurements according to international ISO standards. SpectraLab provides absolute color measurements, L*a*b* color scale information, and density readings – all toward matching a brand owner’s color standards and design while maintaining perfect color matches throughout a run cycle.
• PrintFlow Server: As central storage for AVT’s PrintFlow data base, the server allows users to store, backup and monitor all aspects of print quality from one access point, regardless of site structure and location.
AVT will exhibit in Stand 6H60 at LabelExpo Europe on September 24-27 in Brussels, Belgium.
